    Information Literacy Materials Created by COCC Librarians

    COCC librarians have created additional information literacy instructional materials that you may find helpful. Faculty are welcome to reuse any of the tutorials or this additional material in their own courses.

    • Cat Finney's Research Happy!: research guides and tips for specific topics
    • Tina Hovekamp's Information Literacy Learning Modules: lessons cover a range of concepts and skills, from choosing a research topic, to evaluating a source, to searching the Library catalog and specific databases.
    • Kirsten Hostetler's Information Literacy Blog: posts for COCC students interested in learning more about research, highlighting search techniques and resources available at the Barber Library

    Other Tutorials:

    Although not specific to COCC or the Barber Library, these are wonderful resources for teaching or learning more information literacy concepts and skills.
